“The Rosetta Mission 2022” is inspired by the homonymous space mission of E.S.A., the European Spatial Agency, that took place between 2004 and 2016. It represents the 3D reconstruction of the 67.P Churyumov Gerasimenko comet, transformed from a physical celestial body into a digital convergence point for different disciplines. A floating island hidden inside a digital sculpture called “Third Eye Prophecy Hyperinascimento” was originally generated, as an augmented reality application, geolocalized between Leonardo Da Vinci’s monument and the legendary La Scala Theater of Milan in April 2022. The “RM2022” is a temporary free Hub, without specific, political, religious, and geographical coordinates, suitable for interdisciplinary contributions and social interaction: a meeting point for activists, artists, philosophers, and scientists. A place for a hybrid public that overcomes the linguistic and physical boundaries in the post-pandemic era. A metaplace suspended in time, able to teleport the travelers into an immersive space conceived as a new hyper-technological, collaborative environment. The project aims to be a metaphorical digital Rosetta Stone accessible 2,200 years after the archaeological find that annihilated the Babel Tower purposes. A relational tool that allows information to flow and connect the people of the world. The “RM2022 ” takes place as a Mozilla Hubs social community for multiple users and as a solo meditative journey developed in Unity.
The Rosetta Mission 2023 presents a tribute to the work of the conceptual artist Vincenzo Agnetti (Milan 1926) combined with a selection of the previous ones from 2020 and 2022.
In detail, from the Vincenzo Agnetti’s productions on the Rosetta Mission 2023 have been digitalized and installed a series of “Bacheliti” and “Meridiane” together with “I tre villaggi differenti” (1977).
